We have a JVC KD-G402 CD/radio receiver fitted in the 146 and it has started to show some strange behaviour. The oddest of which is turning itself on overnight. I’m wondering if anyone here may have an answer.
The circumstances are as follows. Last Friday wife returned home form work and said the unit was not working; it had on the way to work. It was powering up OK but there was no sound. All the controls were working, the volume control was showing an increase on screen and nothing appeared to be restricting the sound ie phone mute. Looking at the troubleshooting section in the manual gave no clues other than performing a reset of the unit. This I tried a couple of times without success.
I then removed the unit from the facia and disconnected the wiring plugs from the rear – they were seated properly – and replaced them and the sound returned. So I refitted the unit and all was fine. My wife used the car later but not the radio.
Now for the odd thing. The car was not used Saturday but on Sunday morning, whilst outside I heard the radio on in the car which I had to unlock to turn off. My wife used the car during the day (I don’t know if she used the radio) but I’m certain it was off later in the day. Monday morning and the same thing, car sat outside with the radio on.
Other than a poltergeist anyone got any ideas? I don’t think it’s an Alfa problem as such but any suggestions welcome.
